macropopsicle – a cute open source two key macro-pad #Keyboards #CircuitPython @Hackaday
MacroPopsicle is a tasty two key macro-pad is perfect for use when you need a couple of keys and have a sweet novelty doing to. This treat is powered by an Adafruit QT Py, a couple of Cherry MX-style switches, some wires, and a handful of printed parts. It’s easily mapped using CircuitPython, edited in any text editor as the board appears as a USB drive.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
